Gilbert Glass professionals do not simply provide customers with superior quality products but also seek to fit themselves in the latest sustainable development trends. This is one of the main reasons why we are so attentive to the materials and quality of work provided to customers. This is also why we familiarize ourselves with the potential benefits and risks of new construction and design materials. In this blog, we want to discuss the importance of volatile organic contents and their implications for sustainable development in the glass industry. Like any other industrial manufacturing field, the glass industry uses complex chemical compounds to produce sophisticated and functional glass products. Volatile chemical compounds represent an important stage in the development of new glass products, but we at Gilbert Glass should understand that VOC have both positive and negative sides.
No, that certainly does not mean that VOC are necessarily dangerous! Also, that does not mean that all glass products are unfriendly to the environment. It is nothing but pure chemistry, and our glass products meet all standards of quality and safety. The topic of VOC is important mainly because it provides a better understanding to consumers of the glass products they buy and use in their homes and businesses. Today’s manufacturers use complex methodologies to determine and disclose the VOC in their products. Basically, they heat their products and evaporate all volatile contents. Then they weight the product and measure the difference. The amount of VOC is usually expressed as the number of grams per Liter of the substance (g/L). If you need more information about the way glass products are manufactured and whether they meet the basic safety regulations, please, ask Gilbert Glass. We are ready to inform you about everything that interests you in the glass market.
